2) The Paper based’ manager owns a laptop and PC but insists on paper based documents for every project, is continuously rummaging to find important information, has an overflowing inbox with unread emails, and never uses the management software, making it impossible for colleagues to collaborate.
3) The Short-on-time’ manager is constantly trying to pass work on to other employees before chasing them up at a later date to check progress, has an inbox of emails sent to staff with demands, has a chaotic filing system and avoids in house systems.
4) The Email’ manager refuses to deal with anything that isn’t received by email, has a clean and tidy desk, has an overflowing mailbox filled with folders, subfolders and attachments, and prevents proper collaboration because everything has to be sent for input.
